    I’ve made this recipe for over 20 years and it is very versatile. I always use a large can of pureed tomatoes in sauce otherwise there is not enough sauce. Substitute chopped green peppers and mushrooms for the ground beef if serving to non-meat eaters. It tastes just as good. Add a sprinkle of cayenne for a little pizzazz. Great dish for pot lucks. Buon appetito!  -  05 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I mixed the meat sauce with the noodles and topped with the cheese and baked at 350 for approx 20 minutes (instead of broiling). Very tasty!  -  27 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe! I double the tomato sauce or else there isn't enough. Aside from that it has turned out to be a new favorite dish. Its quick and easy and tastes great!  -  28 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
